barely breathing..

sangat sangat busy!

my lunch today was 3 sticks of choki choki eaten at my desk while crunching out refinery economics numbers huhu

so pathetic right!

on top of that, i miss my jogging partner aka one of BFF :(

she (the lucky woman!) is on holiday in Cape Town, SA and will be offshore for the next five weeks!!!! just in time of my birthday! she better bring me back something shiny and pretty for my birthday :p


i dont have time for my daily jog at the Kiara Park..

i havent eaten a decent lunch in a proper restaurant or even at home in weeks....

i am double hatting 2.5 roles at the same time which means as of today my inbox mail is equal to 2043 unread emails...

my request to take just one freaking day off have been rejected 5 times!!! while other peeps happily take a week off!!argghhhh!!!!

i need a long break.................................................

preferably somewhere cold.


sekian dan terima kasih kerana sudi membaca tentang kehidupan saya yang sangat sedih ini.

ps : the 30 day blog challenge will have to be postponed until further notice!

Day 5 – What makes you different from everyone else?

im not.

different from everyone else.

i think :p

everyone wants to be unique to the point its now normal to be different.

ok let's see....

i love to drive fast. like super super fast. my ex boss used to own a Ferrari and he used to let me drive from KL to Singapore when we have our meetings. and we get there in 1.5 hrs. yes i was dat crazy back then. now mcm dah insaf sikit but i still love to drive fast.

i am a perfectionist to the point of annoying, especially when it comes to work.

i LOVE organizing events. and im damn good at it too!

i am bagaholic - actually not dat different that most women i know :)

i love old movies especially from Jane Austen - i.e. like Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park. Others like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Casablanca and of course the whole of P Ramlee movies, all my favourites!

im crazy about traveling. i must MUST MUST travel to one location outside the country at least once a year. i try to cover places ive never been. my target is to be at least on every single continent before im 40 :p

ok lah, enough la nie :p

wa dulu ada gang racing..kereta bmw special edition!

Day 4 – Your favorite photograph of your best friend

i think im very lucky to have some of the funniest, craziest, nicest and most wonderful group of best friends anyone could ever wish for (^_^)

ours is a matured friendship that not only we are together at all the good and bad times, we can annoy each other, get on each others' nerves, fight and make up all in the same day and yet feel safe that we still love each other enough to know these are just the way we are, the way women are :)

i decided to put single pictures of them instead of all of us together in a group to show their unique individuality and i think these are the pictures that best capture them :) :)

love you guys loads! (^_^)

Day 3 – Your idea of the perfect first date

it started with a lovely breakfast at the local stalls shop, you know, where there are many different stalls inside one restaurant? that's my favourite kind of breakfast place as there's so many food to choose from and you get to try everything! :) over breakfast would be the initial conversations, work, family education and the kind of person he is dealing with crowd, lots of people, if he is adventurous with food, does he let you try his food :p

then it moved on to the one of the best bazaar in town or flea market, i absolutely adores flea markets, which is why i love going to car boots so much while in Plymouth :) the smell of salty french fries and malt vinegar greeting you when you walked in, books at 50p each, glasses and pots and pans at a quid each, weird and sometimes gorgeous lamps at bargain prices, new and used toys, and so many other things, rest assured you need only to spend 5 pounds and can happily walk home with a load of stuff, while munching on heavenly sugary doughnuts!

i digress :p anyway, in these kind of places, is where you can walk and talk and discover more about likes and dislikes and sharing of stories and experiences :) a bazaar is a wonderful place to gauge someone's attitude towards different things - like how he felt about buying second hand items or is he a snob and would never go near them, his bargaining skills, does he have the charms to get that discount or is he rude and huffingly walk away?

after this would be a crucial point of the date, if things went well, you might go to lunch together, if not, hey at least you got all those nice stuff from the bazaar hehe

i dont really like having first dates at night, the pressure is too much and you tend to have all these stigma of those dates in the movies on how its suppose to be and when it wasnt like that you get disappointed which is totally not the guy's fault, he obviously did not grow up watching romantic chick flick all his life :) plus, going to candlelight restaurants, driving around together at night with a guy you just met? not such a good idea :)

Day 1 - Your Favourite Song


its a tough one to choose, since i loved so many songs but this one i especially love because it reminds me of road trips and driving with your best friends with the window open and singing on top of your lungs. reminds me of a time where life was simpler and less complicated and we were so young and naive and ambitious, wanting to do everything and go "terbang" everywhere :)

when one door closes....

i havent written anything serious in my blog for quite a while now.

there are many things i want to share, especially on the frustration of my phd journey.

however i have been postponing these serious posts. not really sure why but i feel if i avoid putting them in black and white, it wouldnt hurt so bad. or at least, it wouldnt make it so real.

when i started writing this post, i thought its time to share. especially since i received another dissapointing news today.

but again, i suddenly felt defeated and decided not too.


Bicester Village yg berhantu!

two years i was studying there, never once i stepped foot on Bicester Village, mainly because people always say tempat tu berhantu! kenapa berhantu? sebab kalau pergi, macamana takde duit pun MESTI akan terbeli jugak sesuatu!! and then bila balik rumah, akan tertanya2 sendiri, eh betul ke beli nie?? what was i thinking?? i cant afford this gorgeous Gucci bag! mesti tadi kat Bicester kena rasuk and made me buy this!!


ok lah, betul la berhantu tu, so dats why masa student tak pernah pergi, nanti terguna duit rent, jadi homeless pulak nanti :p :p

so when i went there last winter, baru la ada berani sikit nak pergi, itu pun credit card bawak satu jer, bahaya oooo!!

muka sangat sangat sangat excited untuk memula kan peng-shopping-an :p :p

this was on the 28th December, there were so many people there! even bumped into some "local politician and celebrities" there, shopping sebelah2 lagi :p

the pathways are super icy see! and it was freezing cold! but it certainly did not stopped anybody from shopping to their heart's content!

our loot! sikit jer :) and saja ambik gambar depan Gucci but didnt buy anything there, can u believe when we arrive just an hour after it opens, the shop is almost empty! the shelves are bare! they said almost all the sale items are already sold, we were late! tsk tsk...

but i got what i wanted and managed to shop for some cool stuff for everyone back home and they are all happy with their gifts, semua tu kira birthday present dua tahun hehe :p :p

Washington DC enroute (the train ride)

continue from the New York trip last year hehe i know i know sangat lama nak update kan! but better late than never :p :p

sebelum the main pictures of the town itself, here are some pics i took on the train :)

nak tunjuk skill amik gambar while in a moving train, not bad right?? hehe ok la puji diri sendiri hehe :p :p

next post - Washington DC
